2016-Pro Cricuit-Chris Alldredge-Texas

Pro Circuit Team Rides Solid In Arlington

Corona, Calif. (February 22, 2016) – The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Team came out hungry in Arlington, Texas this past weekend. Joey Savatgy and Chris Alldredge both had solid heat runs, taking away 1st and 8th. Savatgy in the main event, came out of the gate leading the pack in lap #1, but a blocked line in the whoops by Honda rider Christian Craig, would send Savatgy to the ground, pushing him back to the #22 position. He would then make his way through pack to salvage points and finish 10th. Chris Alldredge had an overall solid performance in the main event working his way from a 12th place start to finish 8th.

Savatgy Stays Strong
Joey Savatgy came into AT&T Stadium with the mindset of pushing away with the points lead, but an accident in the main event, would push him back to second in the overall 250SX Point Series. He started the night off with a reassuring 1st place win in his heat race, and would continue his success leading the pack out of the gate in the main, but an unfortunate fall in the whoops would force him to finish 10th. Savatgy is currently in 2nd for the West 250 Series and expect to see him looking to reclaim that throne in Round 8.

“Tonight didn’t go quite as planned…We got off to a great start, winning my heat and grabbing the holeshot in the Main Event. Unfortunately I came together with another rider in the whoops and went down. We’ve got a break now, which will give the team and I a chance to work on a few things to come back swinging.”

Alldredge Lands Within The Top 10 At Texas
Chris Alldredge had a solid start in Arlington, finishing 8th in his heat race. He would later come out of the gate for the main in 12th and would aggressively push his tempo with confidence to work his way up to a solid 8th place finish. Alldredge is extremely eager to get back to work and land on that podium.

“Today went pretty well, I didn’t get off the line very well, but plugged away and got up to eighth. We’re going to start doing some outdoor training and I’ll be ready for Santa Clara in a few weeks.”

To start the night, he earned another heat win victory and in the main event, he was able to work his way through the pack to grab a 3rd place podium spot. Joey intends to work on a few things and head back to San Diego for a chance to take the lead in the series.

“Today was pretty good, had a pretty good heat race, where we were able to come home with another heat win, podium and salvage points.”

Alldredge Turns It Up a Notch In Arizona

(February 1, 2016) – Last weekend the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Team was at O.co Coliseum in Oakland, CA, for Round 4 of the 2016 Monster Energy AMA Supercross FIM Championship. Joey Savatgy dominated throughout the night and was deservedly earned a 1st place podium finish and overtook Cooper Webb’s points lead for the 250SX series. Chris Alldredge also had a solid performance, finishing 20th after getting stuck at the start in 22nd. The team is looking to solidify a few things, continue practicing and head to Round 5 in Arizona next weekend with confidence and momentum.

Hard Work Pays Off For Savatgy

Joey Savatgy enters every race with the mindset of winning and this weekend it showed, as a huge win is exactly what he got! Savatgy earned his first career Monster Energy Supercross 250SX victory, dethroning Yamaha rider Cooper Webb, and taking over as the current points leader for the West. To start off the night, he took yet another heat race win, and in the main, Savatgy started out in 3rd around the first corner, pushing to advance to second by the 4th lap. By the 12th lap, he was able to take over 1st place and earn the coveted checkered flag.

“Today was really good. Qualifying went well and I earned my first supercross win, and the points lead, so emotions are really high right now. Time to go back to the farm and keep working as hard as we have been.”

(January 27, 2016) – The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Team heads to O.co Coliseum in Oakland, CA for Round 4, a stop that’s expected to be filled with excited, roaring Northern California fans. Both Joey Savatgy and Chris Alldredge are heading into this weekend with sheer determination to land a earned spot on the podium and give fans an unforgettable performance.

Savatgy Looking To Set The Tone In Oakland

Joey Savatgy just missed the podium in Anaheim 2 and you can bet he’s going all in this weekend. Currently at 3rd in the overall point standings, he’s got plenty of time left to turn things up! With practice throughout the week and working with mechanics consistently to perfect his KX250F, he’s sure to be coming out guns blazing to prove he can compete at the elite level. If Joey can stay consistent in his heat, get a good start out of the main and set the pace, we expect to see Joey on the podium in Oakland this weekend.

Alldredge rode extremely poised and smart last weekend, leaving with a respectable 12th place finish. If he can merge his speed in his heat races with the solid riding he’s shown in recent main events, he’ll continue to climb the points ladder in search of that top 10. Be sure to watch Alldredge ride for the podium this weekend at O.co Coliseum.

“I have the team and the bike to be up at the front and I won’t stop pushing until I’m there.”

Covington MX2 Mexico Winner

MX2 GP for Thomas Covington in Mexico

Thomas Covington clinched a dramatic victory for the Monster Energy Kawasaki MX2 Racing Team in the penultimate round of the FIM World MX2 Motocross Championship at Leon in Mexico.

The US teenager already showed impressive form during qualification as he charged to third place and he maintained his speed through varying conditions all weekend. The track was very muddy for the first GP moto after overnight rain but Thomas was never ruffled and soon took advantage of an error by the championship leader to move from an initial fifth place to finish a solid fourth in the difficult conditions. An even better start in race two saw Thomas complete the first lap in second place and, after taking the lead on lap two, he kept his nerve to grab the first GP moto win of his career. His 4-1 scoreline was also sufficient to take the overall GP victory and he has now leapt to twelfth in the series.

Max Anstie of Monster Energy DRT Kawasaki maintained his recent form to take second place in the opening GP moto and appeared to be in serious contention for his fourth overall GP win of the season as the first moto winner encountered problems early in the race. Unfortunately Max also made a mistake through the rhythm section and he went down hard, damaging the bike and banging his head in the process. Rejoining the race in fourteenth place, he advanced to eleventh at the finish to secure fifth overall on the day and consolidate his third place in the championship standings.

Petar Petrov of the Monster Energy Kawasaki MX2 Racing Team had charged from last to tenth in qualification to raise hope of a good GP result but unfortunately he touched with another rider at the first corner of race one and crashed into the deep sticky mud which had been bulldozed off the track. His KX250F was damaged in the incident so he was unable to continue, and medical examination revealed that he had damaged one of the vertebrae in his neck so he did not start race two. Nevertheless Petar remains tenth in the championship standings.

Thomas Covington: “It’s so good to finally get a win. I’ve been pushing hard always and it’s been a tough two years with a lot of bad races, a few good ones and coming here to get this win is unbelievable. I hope to keep this going. The first race the track was really muddy and I just tried to survive and not to crash; I had the holeshot but went too much to the outside and a few guys passed me. I tried to keep on two wheels and it was pretty tough. The track was completely different for the second moto; it was pretty dry in some places. I was second at the first corner and finally made the move to first place. I tried to put down some fast lap to make a gap; I knew that Gajser was coming back at the end of the race but I held on to win this moto. I had no idea that I had won the GP until I arrived at the podium! Next weekend it will be good to race at Glen Helen; I will go to my home race full of confidence.”

Max Anstie: “The first race was nice; the track was pretty muddy and you had to ride smart. I was very pleased to take a second position because Pauls was riding awesome. It’s a shame about the second one; I was in a really good position after the start, made a few passes and then crashed. That didn’t end so well; the bike was damaged, I had no front brake and I just tried to get as many points as possible after this big crash. That’s the way things go, and I’m now looking to the last round of the season.”

Petar Petrov: “It was not a good GP for me. Yesterday was not so bad even if I went off the track during the qualifying race and had to come back from last to tenth. The track was wet at the first race for the first GP moto; I got a really good start in the top five but when I tried to turn in the first corner I came together with Guillod and I went straight on into the mud they had pushed off of the track. I went pretty hard over the bars; I hurt my neck really hard and couldn’t go back in the race as the bike was damaged. I felt a lot of pain in my neck and went to see the doctors; they brought me to the hospital and they saw that one of my vertebrae has moved a little bit. It’s not too bad and I hope that I can race in the US. I’m really happy for the team and Thomas, who won the GP; we see that many guys can win a GP and I think that I’m one of these guys.”

Petar Petrov on podium

Petar Petrov’s 1st MXGP Podium!

Petar Petrov joined Anstie on the podium as he finished third overall for the Monster Energy Kawasaki MX2 Racing Team. The Bulgarian had chased Anstie home for second place in the Qualifying race and held a strong third place throughout the first GP moto. After challenging Anstie strongly in the early laps of race two he settled for a fourth place which would secure the first overall GP podium result of his career, showing great confidence as he rebounded from a last lap slip to secure his place in the record books as the first Bulgarian to mount a GP podium for 30 years. He has now advanced to ninth in the series standings.

Petar Petrov: “It was a great feeling to be on the podium, my first ever and the first one of a Bulgarian rider for almost thirty years! It’s a great feeling and I hope that it’s just the first one of many. The track was really tough and rough, but that makes the difference between the riders and I really like these conditions even if I’m very tired now. I think that they did a good job on the track, there were many different lines, it was possible to pass and we could make some good races.”

Jordi Tixier: “Not a good weekend for me, and I’m frustrated tonight with my results. In the first race I was fifth but my rhythm wasn’t good enough and I finished seventh; then my start was not so good in the second moto. I was in the pack and crashed at the third corner. I was last and just had to give all I could to come back, but again I lost some time when I had another crash and eventually finished twelfth.”
